    Most of the time you just need to 'sit it out' I think, but you relieving the symptoms is probably your best bet... you might wanna try lemsip/beechams if you have those symptoms - just be careful to not overload of paracetamol/ibuprofen, because these combo medicines will include a certain amount! Hope you feel better soon

    Ride it out. Drink plenty of water, lemsip, try and eat well with lots of vitamin C. have hot baths/showers as the steam will help clear your nose and throat. No miracle cure for the common cold but this should help!

    You cant really. Extra vitamin c helps, but as said above the aim is plenty of rest and hot drinks to keep hydrated and some food to keep your strength up.
